“Statement from Revolution Chairman and CEO Steve Case on the Senate’s passage of S.744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act”

“Today the Senate passed a strong bipartisan bill to modernize our nation’s immigration laws. I applaud Senators on both sides of the aisle that worked together in good faith and common purpose to make this outcome possible. This important step demonstrates the capacity of our elected leaders in Washington to come together across party lines to advance what is clearly in our nation’s best interest – an immigration system that meets the needs of our 21stcentury economy. The Senate’s bill will attract the world’s best entrepreneurs and innovators and be a key ingredient to sustaining America’s long-term competitive edge. I encourage the House to seize this opportunity and join the two-thirds majority in the Senate that recognize the urgent need to fix our broken immigration system.”
